Rating for this plant:
The biggest and best blueberry bushes I have ever seen were planted in an old cement fish pond that had been filled with rotted logs and then the bushes were planted. All the bushes are 8 to 10 feet (2.5-3 m)tall and the berries are the size of a nickle.

The fruit is wonderful, you just have to beat the wildlife (and pets) to it. With different varieties you can have blueberries from June through August.

Bark of the bush is reddish and attractive in the winterscape.
